Males receives NSF CAREER award for math ed

Mathematics is one of the most textbook-dependent subjects in school, and much research goes into developing math curricula. Relatively little effort, however, is spent helping K-12 math teachers use textbooks effectively, said Nebraska education researcher Lorraine Males.

To support future teachers in employing math curricula, Males will research how teachers currently approach textbooks. She will use these results to develop teacher education materials for college-level courses, with the goal of better preparing students for future teaching positions.

Gazing into a newborn nursery, it is difficult to imagine the new bundles of joy are focused on much more than their next nap or meal. But according to Nebraska researcher Victoria Molfese, there is more happening in these babies' minds than meets the eye. Even the youngest babies are working hard to build complex language skills.
